Maksim Chmerkovskiy: Out of Dancing With the Stars?

by at . Comments

The rumors are swirling again, as they seem to every spring and fall as Dancing With the Stars prepares to unveil a new cast: Will Maksim Chermkovskiy return?

He certainly didn’t endear himself to the judges last season when he made arrogant quips to Len Goodman about how the elder statesman should leave the show.

Even though he claimed in the same breath that “this is my show, you know,” is Maks calling it a career? He's hinted that he might, and ABC won't comment.

The DWTS producers won’t reveal which pros will return for the 14th season until they announce the latest round of celebrities (February 28 on Good Morning America). 

When the new season begins March 19, there would be a gaping void without Maks - love him, loathe him or a little of both - that very few if any celebs could fill.

EW even lists the obvious reasons why:

  • His passion makes for great TV. He's over the top sometimes, but he cares.
  • He's an institution at DWTS, having been with the show since Season 2.
  • He has yet to win the Mirror Ball trophy. C'mon, Maks. One more shot?
  • He's actually a very good teacher ... occasional tough love and all.
  • Women seem to love images such as the one above.

What do you think? Would DWTS be the same without Maks?

Len had it coming, he is just right down miserable and Max is the only reason I watch bring him back

I like Max (sometimes I don't) but feel Len had it coming last season. I often feel Len's comments cross over the line (like Simon-do the English not know "Tack")? If anyone should leave the show it's Len and his crumpy self.

Maks is the only reason I tune in

IS Maks BACK

I thought the best thing they did was to have Max on there and to bring his brother on there too. It was interesting and they are both fantastic dancers. Actually, one of the main reasons a lot of us watch is to see Max and his banter with the contestants and the host of the show, Tom. We will miss that and sorry to see the show going down like this. Oh well, Max, maybe you are out before it goes down. Maybe you could start an exercise/dance video. You could sell millions.

If Maks isn't on DWTS I will not be watching. He is what makes the show interesting. If you want to change something get rid of Carrie Ann. I can deal with Lynn and I love Bruno. It has not been the same since season 7 but I still watch. But not without Maks

I sure hope ABC thinks long and hard about not having Maks back this season.....he's what makes DWTS what it is. If they want to get rid of people, how bout replacing the judges...especially Carrie Ann. I absolutely can not stand her. I'll be front and center if Maks is back, won't be that important to watch if he's not.

WITHOUT MAKS IT ISN'T EVEN WORTH TURNING THE TV ON. HE'S THE ONLY REASON I WATCH. HE'S THE GREATEST. COME BACK MAKS!!!! WE LOVE YOU.

DWTS is no show without Max. I have not missed a season because I love the show.But not without Max. It won't be the same and I would not watch it. Change the judges.

Dancing with the Stars Quotes

We should have started dancing with one arm waaay before.

Cristian de la Fuente [following his injury, trip to the hospital and subsequent stellar performance]

I am not the best dancer, and I have not been the best dancer from the beginning. I am happy we made it this far.
